Pratibha's Roasted Chana Dal

ATeatime Snack


"This is a wonderful teatime snack," Pratibha says. "You can eat it just as it is or with a dollop of low-fat or fat-free yogurt or low-fat soft fresh cheese.


  • 1 cup roasted chana dal
  • tsp turmeric powder
  • tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 small onion chopped fine
  • 1 green chili chopped fine and remove the seeds
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • 4-5 curry leaves
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • tsp brown sugar (optional)
  • Salt to taste


  • In a large pan heat oil and add cumin seeds, sputter. Then add the curry leaves, fry a little ,and then add onion, chillies and fry; add turmeric powder. Add salt and sugar. Now add the roasted chana dal and fry for 1-2 minutes; stir often so as not to burn the roasted dal. Finally, just before taking off from the fire add coriander leaves.
